Program Coordinator for Information & Referral Systems Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL)
Position Overview
 
The Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL) is a newly established call center that aims to help people with disabilities access the COVID-19 vaccine. By leveraging over 30 years of call center expertise and a range of disability partners in the development and launch of the new call center, DIAL will connect users to local resources which can help them access the COVID-19 vaccine and other critical community-based supports.

The service is operated through a call center, staffed by trained information specialists and supported by a team of experienced human services professionals.
 
The Program Coordinator is responsible for providing effective supervision toward maintaining high-quality service delivery, and the smooth day-to-day functioning of the DIAL Call Center. This is accomplished by supporting staff through direct 1:1 supervision and coaching, training, evaluation, monitoring schedule adherence, and collaboration with other members of the n4a Call Center leadership team (Director, Program Managers and other Program Coordinators).
